A coming together of exclusivity and a distinct Goan style of peaceful living
Built over three-and-a-half years, Pousada Tauma is a marvel in exposed masonry. This quaint, eco-friendly, 12suite boutique hotel set in two acres is located in the Bardez area of Goa. Made from a liberal use of laterite stone, it stands out as distinctly Goan. Owned by Neville Proenga and his wife Angelica, it is so intimate in its design and service that it gives the feeling of staying over at your personal resort. The suites are scattered around the pool and have been given names such as the Sea, Fields, Mountains and Castle. The only sounds that can be heard here are the gurgling of water and the twittering of birds. The highpoint of Pousada Tauma is its Ayurvedic centre, that has a doctor for consultations. The centre has the full range of therapies from invigorating massages to ones that cure insomnia. When it comes to meals, you are allowed to walk into the kitchen in case you want to see the chef at work or convey specifications about your food. This is the place which shuts out the world and opens up the heavens for you.
